ABOUT DEB YOUNG :: PRENATAL YOGA WOLLONGONG
Hey there! My name is Deb Young.
I’m the co-founder of Younga Yoga Studio, a mom of two gorgeous kiddies, a trained Doula and the creator of Stretch & Glow - an online prenatal yoga program that thousands of women just like you have used during their pregnancy to feel fit, reduce pregnancy aches and pains and prepare for birth.
I know that pregnancy can be a time when you are juggling SO MANY THINGS… your health (trying not to puke), your energy levels (omg…. is it nap time yet?), your plans for the future as a mum and your birth choices.
It can all seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.
I have always loved health & fitness, I have a Degree in Health Education (Hons) and have been supporting women in the health and fitness space for around 30 years.
For the last 13 years I’ve been lucky enough to share my prenatal yoga practices with thousands of women from the Illawarra in person so I’m thrilled to welcome you to our PRENATAL YOGA FAMILY.
MY PHILOSOPHY ON PREGNANCY + BIRTH
My mission is to support all women during pregnancy that want to stay active and do what they can to support their own physical and emotional wellbeing. I am passionate about helping ALL women (no matter what your birth goals are), find a deeper connection to pregnancy through mindful movement, breath work, strengthening practices & learning how to communicate your deepest needs with those who will be supporting your pregnancy and journey in motherhood.
PLANNING A HOMEBIRTH?
Great! I’ll help you learn to trust your instincts, ride the wave of your breath and practice tapping into the deep inner wisdom and strength that you already have. We have first hand experience with supporting women at home and know first hand the power of tuning into techniques that establish trust, stamina, surrender and strength. You got this!
WANT AN ACTIVE BIRTH IN A HOSPITAL SETTING?
No problem! We’ll show you ways to stay active, help bring baby down, strategies to conserve your energy, trust your body, and tips on how and when to ask for help. Midwives from Wollongong’s Midwifery Group Practice often refer women to our classes because we help you work with your breath and trust your body.
PLANNING A CESAREAN?
No worries! Our classes are for ALL women. Even if you need a cesarean for medical reasons, or just making that choice, we’ll help you keep your body strong so that it recovers more easily, as well as tips you can implement to make life a bit easier post surgery. Because the recovery from cesarean takes longer, we find that students who have a regular yoga practice tend to heal quicker, have coping mechanisms to calm the mind and body in those first few weeks when you are caring for your newborn as well as recovering from major surgery.
